I understand your frustration on this topic--really. It is true that many people who spend most of their life wrapped up in formal education are frequently missing some very important components of common since. However, it is also true that they spend many hours each week for many years being consistently challenged, making mistakes of logic, learning from those mistakes, and moving forward with a better understanding. I don't discredit either on how smart he/she might be. It is also true that genetics is a topic that has been, and can be, very well studied and understood by the scientific method. So, science and good scientists do have the ability to uncover truths in a very clear, testable and repeatable fashion. This ability is not innate, just as building a skyscraper is not. On the other side, others might be more able to find a practical use for this knowledge. It probably makes no difference, but I have had the pleasure of spending several years as a blue-collar before and early into college and am completing terminal degrees in 2 disciplines. Cheers
